Badami is a tiny town, though anything but quiet. The streets are overwhelmed with the sounds of cars, busses, rickshaws, horses all honking, and people yelling. I left the busy street and climbed up inside the cliffs enjoying the peace and quiet and making friends monkeys. I climbed and sat amongst the family. They took little notice of me, almost immediately accepting my presence.
